The logistics of installing a security system are often forgotten or deemed irrelevant when purchasing a security system. However, the ability to actually install and effectively use security cameras is ultimately the most important factor to consider before you make any purchasing decisions. Depending on your space and what you wish to have surveillance on, the type of security camera you need can be vastly different. As a handy guide, below we have outlined common types of security cameras, their installation process, and the type of home they would be best suited to. 

Night Vision Cameras

With visibility being low, thieves can operate much easier at night, slipping in and out of homes undetected. Night vision cameras aim to strip away the obvious advantages thieves have at night, by clearly recording footage of your home after hours. Night cameras are very easy to install, with most night vision cameras being quick to set up and move around. Most night vision cameras are rechargeable or plug into an external electric source, meaning the most installation they could require is a power source. As night vision cameras are easy to move, with most cameras benign handheld, you can see which angle works best for you. Night vision cameras can monitor activity in your garden, or be set up to keep watch over your front door during the night, capturing any unusual activity. 

Traditional Security Cameras 

Standard home security cameras are the hardest camera systems to install, as they often need to be wired into walls, in order to make them more discrete. These security cameras are often used when one wishes to have continual surveillance around the home and property exterior. Whilst traditional security cameras offer consistency and footage from multiple angles, they are much less flexible than hidden or spy cameras. Once security cameras are screwed and wired in, they are a lot harder to move. Hidden or spy cameras are mostly handheld, allowing you to adjust and move them as you desire. Traditional security cameras are also not particularly suitable if you are living in rented accommodation, as installing them will result in inevitable damage to the property. 

Hidden Cameras

Hidden cameras are the most low-maintenance security cameras, with no installation required. Most hidden cameras are either rechargeable or use batteries, allowing quick and easy charging and recording. For smaller spy cameras, these can be purchased with an added power bank, which acts as a battery booster, allowing the spy camera to have approximately 24 hours of charge. The adaptability of hidden cameras also makes them perfect for any home, regardless of whether you live in a house, flat and so on.
